Hey all!

I created a tool that can help you speed up WarLight map making. If you already have an existing map and need to transfer over some data to a new map, you can use this when creating a new map to have much of the work done for you. Important: When creating a new map family, upload your original file (the map to copy data from), use the tool, and THEN upload your new map file. The territory ID's should be almost the same, or this tool will not work as expected.

I'm also planning to add this to the WarLight Mapmaking Wiki.
Questions or comments are welcome. Thanks!

may i suggest you make it open source and put it on github? so others can contribute updates if they want, and you get a free place to host your zip download.

i have no idea about map making, but i'm curious what do you mean by "almost" in "territory ID's should be almost the same" ;p

Your new SVG should have all the same ID's that are being transferred over, but can also contain some more. (But the user would need to name those territories.)

@Olkani - Looks great, and I'm glad it worked out so well for you!

If you are getting errors while transferring data, I'd recommend just uploading the SVG file from the first map. (Because all ID's and bonuses will be there.) And then change it from there.

Thanks for the info! Spaces will not work either, but that's just how the API works.

Great work, NinjaNic! So sad that I didn't see this thread a bit earlier :( It could have saved me a lot of time.
